“Alchemy: a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation or combination.”

I have been practicing alchemy since age 9, when I fashioned a pair of shoes from cardboard, ribbon and black walnut half-shells. I wanted to wear shoes that made the clicking sound of grown-up heeled shoes, and it worked!
That walnut-shoe moment infused me with the confidence to embrace this idea of making something new from random parts. Whether blending color, formulating skincare or transforming ingredients in my kitchen, alchemy best describes all that I do. Throughout my life I have innovated through artistic processes, developing a renaissance-like lifestyle. My home and my studios are one constant joyful experiment: the alchemy of a life well lived.

Jane, the alchemist

As the kid who always asked “why?” I have been informally studying chemistry for my entire life to understand the physical world around me.
